How Much Do Residential Moving Companies Charge?

Relocating or moving to a different place is a huge decision by itself. On top of that, homeowners have many additional decisions to make: to DIY, how to choose a moving company based on their costs, etc. However, these shouldn’t be additional reasons to stress over.

Although some homeowners prefer to handle the moving process by themselves, it could be a stressful and risky situation if they don’t have the expertise required to properly take care of their possessions. So it is recommended to hire residential moving services to handle the situation. Take a look at how the price range of residential moving services change depending on many factors. This will guide you on how to adjust the moving services to your needs and, most importantly, your budget.

Moving Services Price Range

The average price of moving services in the US is around $1400, based on a range starting at $800 and up to $2,200 for a moving service less than 100 miles range. The moving price range varies depending on many factors such as the home size, the distance of the moving service, volume of items, and the type of service you’re going to hire. Now take a look at these factors.

Additional Services

There are many residential moving services out in the market. Each one has a different price depending on the moving needs and budget. For example, a packing service usually is not included in the moving service price. So in case, you may not want to handle the packing process, the moving company will charge an extra fee for the premium service provided.

Size of the Moving

The type of move takes a great part of the price tag in residential moving services. On average, a one-bedroom/studio will request two movers to handle the process, so the price range is about $400. On the other hand, a 5-bedroom house will request approximately five movers and cost on average $3000. 


If the moving price is calculated by hours, most movers charge between $25 to $50 per hour based on local moves. Remember that sometimes this price is just for labor so that other expenses will increase the moving price.
